I picked the "sometimes I miss you so much" line.  It KILLS me everytime.  It was also changed from the story, and it's soooo much more powerful in the movie.  Where's my Jack to say that to me????

Yup... you and I are in the same boat on that one.  (That and the fact I've never had a reunion kiss like that ever before.)  :)

So I edited and there it is...  ;D

Hey Spooky, thanks, now I have to figure out how I change my vote.

The "Remove Vote" link doesn't appear for me in this poll.

The "I miss you so much " line is the greatest.   How many times have we all wanted to say that out loud to someone special?    :'(

another favorite not on the list is :"I'm commuting fours hours a day!"   LOL

I fixed this poll so people can now change their votes.  The original poster can check the box making it okay for users to change their votes when they set the poll up.

That loooong pause in the "Truth is..." line is devastatingly brilliant.

Ditto.....the pause is as much a part of the line as the words.  And that it comes after the bull session about who they're screwing makes it even more poignant.  Even after everything I love that he can still be so vulnerable.

My favorite Jack line was not on the list:

"Now you sit down you ole' son of a bitch before I knock you ass into next week"

The first time I saw Brokeback Mountain the full theater applauded when he told off his father in law.
"It was only you in my life, and it will always be only you, Jack, I swear."

From those on offer, it had to be 'S'alright': I am hit so hard each time by this scene, in a good way though.

I'm the sole "No more beans" voter.  Of all his lines, and I love pretty much all of 'em, this one defines him the most to me.  I think the beans are actually symbolic.  They are a symbol of the status quo, which is acceptable to Ennis but not to Jack.  Just that whole sequence - "I thought you didn't eat soup."  "Yeah, well, I'm sicka beans."  "Too early in the summer to be sick of beans."  Beans being pretending to be straight when you're not.  Love it.  Love the line.  Love that whole sequence.  Love Jack.  Love Ennis.  But mostly love Jack. 
No more beans!
